    Sir, when I go to export layers I go to manage layers, select layer to export, then select the place to export to, but when i choose tge file format for export (kml, geo json, etc) I get a message saying sorry that Mapit has quit working. Tried many times with same results and cannot export my data. Some help would be much appreciated.

      Hi David, can you send me an email – I will try to resolve your problem, but need to discuss it in more details. I would appreciate if you can share your database (backup management) with steps how to get to the crash.

        Thanks for tge reply…My email is daveydoubleclutcher@gmail.com. I did not buy MapIt pro, only bought the two extensions I thought I needed, so I’m assuming I’d have to buy more to use backup management feature and to get you the database you requested.

  2. Hi! I wonder if there is any plans to extend the possible settings of coordinate systems, and export files? I find MapIt Pro easy to use and suitable for smaller archaeological surveys but find it problematic to use because it doesn’t fit with the standard coordinate system in Sweden (Sweref 99) and it would been great if it was possible to export into shp-files.

      Hi Benjamin,
      I will have a look at Sweref99 and see if I can add it in the near future, however it is easy enough to export the data to ArcJSON for direct import using geoprocessing tool to ArcMap, or to geoJSON for qGIS and do necessary coordinates conversion using desktop software.
      You can also use http://ogre.adc4gis.com to convert geoJSON to SHP if you need to work with this file types.

    The program is very good except for the fact that I can export the map to any other program! Is there a program for word I can use and Google maps is rubbish and a screen shot is not big enough.

    • osedok says:

      Hi Caine, I belive the resolution of the screenshot vary from device to device. The screen shot option was added only as some users needed that function to be able to quickly share whatever they had on the screen, however is not a main MapIt function. If you need high quality printing you probably need to export your data to formats like geoJSON, KML etc. end get it post processed in a PC environment like ArcMap or qGIS and do better quality printing from there.

    Gis will work when I’m at the location but when I typed the addresses in it tells me their is no address can you HELP?

    • osedok says:

      Only addresses available in OpenStreetmap Nominatim are supported. The tool generally allow to search for places and coordinates in lat,lon format rather than particular addresses.

    Hello. I tried to put in Epsg for Israel coordinate system, but nothing has changed in coordinates

    • osedok says:

      What is the EPSG code you are trying to use? In the settings you should input full name like “EPSG:27700” not just the number. I will get this changed in the next update as lots of people provides just the numeric code…

  6. James Odom says:

    Is there a way to enter coordinates to find points I have known coordinates for?

    • osedok says:

      Hi James, just input the coordinates in lat, lon format (decimal) in the search box (the same as for search for place).
